Principal's Message

Andrew Jackson Elementary is focused on providing a personalized learning environment for each of our students. Through the integration of a variety of technology resources, students are able to differentiate their learning to access information and demonstrate their knowledge in a multitude of ways. The use of technology enhances learning through increased engagement, problem solving, critical thinking and innovation. Additionally, teachers meet on a routine basis to review student learning data to ensure continual growth for each child. Students, along with their teachers, participate in individual and school-wide goal setting to ensure knowledge of growth toward both academic and personal goals. Students also serve as classroom leaders through use of individual data notebooks and classroom leadership positions.

 

Andrew Jackson Elementary is focused on teaching the whole child. Through our Universal Breakfast program, all students are able to begin their day with a healthy meal. Students are also invited to participate in Before School Stations designed to engage the brain and body with movement before the school day begins. We work closely with our families to ensure a close parent-school connection. Through our parent leadership team, student-led family engagement events, and the support of our PTA, Jackson families play an integral role in the education of their child. The goal of Andrew Jackson Elementary is to prepare our students for the 21st Century. With a focus on personalized instruction and leadership, students at Jackson Elementary are prepared for their future in the 21st Century!
